Hello all.

Post by Kirby301 » Thu Oct 15 2020 20:34

Hello everyone!
Obviously I'm new here, but I have done a little bit of pike fishing, albeit 10+ years ago.
I used to love watching the pike follow and hit the lures! Most fish I caught were jacks but they were good fun.
I gave it up when pike stocks went low and I started catching less and less until I couldn't catch anything at all.
Just lately I've been seeing some nice pike hitting the banks and its reignited the passion and I'm hoping in the last 10 years pike stocks have risen again.
I'm hoping this time round to learn more about pike and their environment and not just chuck lures in any old swim or dumping a deadbait anywhere thinking I'll get a bite eventually!
I live in Wolverhampton so I have canals and some pools to target, the river Severn isn't to far either. My experience is very sketchy to say the least and I'm only used to the canals, I am however confident in handing and unhooking.
